Reservoir Dogs

Easter egg: This is on the Special 10th anniversary DVD. On second disc of the set go to the 'Special Features' section. There, select the 'Critics Commentary' menu option, followed by the 'Up' arrow key on your remote control. This will take you to 3 minutes of rolling DVD production credits, accompanied by cool background music. Also on the second disc of the set, select the 'K-Billy Radio Interactive Radio' and choose the last channel on the far right. Then, press the 'Enter' key on your remote control. This will allow you to view a re-enactment of the infamous ear-cutting scene from the film, as played out by some action figures, with the original footage from the film running in a small window.

Continuity mistake: When Mr Blonde cuts the ear off the cop, we cut to a shot of him holding the ear, it is covered in blood. However, when we cut to a shot of Mr Blonde talking into the ear, there is no blood on the ear.

Mr. Pink: Hey, why am I Mr. Pink?
Joe: Because you're a faggot.
Mr. Pink: Why can't we pick our own colors?
Joe: No way, no way. Tried it once, doesn't work. You got four guys all fighting over who's gonna be Mr. Black, but they don't know each other, so nobody wants to back down. No way. I pick. You're Mr. Pink. Be thankful you're not Mr. Yellow.
Mr. Brown: Yeah, but Mr. Brown is a little too close to Mr. Shit.
Mr. Pink: Mr. Pink sounds like Mr. Pussy. How 'bout if I'm Mr. Purple? That sounds good to me. I'll be Mr. Purple.
Joe: You're not Mr. Purple. Some guy on some other job is Mr. Purple. You're Mr. PINK.
Mr. White: Who cares what your name is?
Mr. Pink: Yeah, that's easy for you to say, you're Mr. White. You have a cool-sounding name. All right look, if it's no big deal to be Mr. Pink, you wanna trade?
Joe: Hey! NOBODY'S trading with ANYBODY. This ain't a goddamn fucking city council meeting, you know. Now listen up, Mr. Pink. There's two ways you can go on this job: my way or the highway. Now what's it gonna be, Mr. Pink?
Mr. Pink: Jesus Christ, Joe, fucking forget about it. It's beneath me. I'm Mr. Pink. Let's move on.
Joe: I'll move on when I feel like it... All you guys got the goddamn message?. I'm so goddamn mad, hollering at you guys I can hardly talk. Pssh. Let's go to work.

Question: Why did Mr. Orange tell Mr. White that he was a cop? Surely he must have realised he would take it badly.

MovieBuff09

Chosen answer: Having just been shot a second time, he was probably dying by that point. He'd done many extremely questionable things - even murdered an innocent mom - and stood by as other terrible crimes were committed in his presence. He'd grown close to Mr. White, who'd just murdered two friends and taken a bullet for Orange's sake - even as Mr. Orange was betraying him all along. So partly this was about his attachment to Mr. White, and partly a death wish stemming from his own guilt about his actions. He knew full well what would happen but told Mr. White anyway, disregarding the consequences.
